Bliss was a huge success! This was my first time taking part in an official bridal event and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. The intimate environment was perfect for my business brand, giving me ample opportunity to speak with brides throughout the entire day and plant seeds for friendships in the future. It was such a pleasure meeting so many excited and glowing ladies! Sabrena and I presented a session together during the first session time slot. The title of our session was A Warm Welcome: How to make your guests feel at ease and comfortable throughout your wedding day. We had so much fun sharing ideas with the ladies about ways you can prepare your guests, help them navigate through your day with ease, and activities and foods to offer to make the day more enjoyable for everyone involved. We had such a good time with the session that we plan to offer a similar one again at the next Bliss event.
Here are a few pictures of my booth at Bliss. Since the day was more about educating (and treating!) the brides, the vendor booths were smaller than they are at bigger bridal expos. I loved my booth and had fun passing out cards and sharing goodies with each bride that came to visit me!
The balloons in the picture represented that I was a speaker (blue) and a sponsor (green) of Bliss. I thought it was fun that they matched my booth perfectly. ;)
Jonathan from The Cupcake Guy made the delicious Chocolate Chunk Sliders you see in the last photo. He tinted the vanilla cream to match my brand colors! He was SUCH a pleasure to work with and the cookies were delicious. If you needs sweet treats for an event coming up, definitely get in touch with him.
And... finally... I offered a $650 value prize of an engagement session + a photo guest book to one lucky bride. The winner of the drawing is... Alicia Allen! Congratulations, Alicia! I will be in touch with you soon!
So, yes, Bliss was a huge success and I am so excited about the next one! You know I'll be sharing the details once they are out, but in the meantime definitely visit Hill City Bride for lots of wedding inspiration, DIY projects, and advice from wedding industry professionals.
